"You have chosen to open
which is a: PNG Image
Would you like to save this file?"
That is the dialog box.
I do download alot of PNG images so maybe it takes the last file type and displays it. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit the link I provided
2. Click download link
3. Look at dialog box
Actual Results:  
I got the same dialog box with the PNG Image file type thing. 

Expected Results:  
I would get the PNG Image dialog box.

It should have said the file type is an executable file.
I get that it is a binary file, which is correct. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:1.9.3a1pre) Gecko/20100109 Minefield/3.7a1pre (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) ID:20100109042837
Can you open in safe mode and test there?
